this net-zero shipping container home in colorado is up for sale for USD$3.15M

diligently crafted using shipping containers, reclaimed wood and steel, this net-zero home in boulder,  colorado is up for sale for USD$3.15M. sited on an elevated 9,375 square-foot lot, the residential house frames views in every direction, including the iconic flatiron views to the south, unobstructed red rocks and foothills views to the north, and eastern vistas over downtown boulder. flooded with abundant natural light, and featuring multiple indoor and outdoor living spaces, this home is designed to take advantage of all that boulder has to offer.

completely handcrafted by homeowners and designers, mark gelband and courtney loveman, in collaboration with local architect mark gerwing, the house features two shipping containers that perfectly fit the rectilinear lot. ‘we had our hands in designing and building everything: from the house itself to the light fixtures, kitchen cabinets, staircases, bathroom vanities, and more,’ gelband told dwell magazine.

apart from its unique design and interior decoration, the container home was built with net-zero energy consumption in mind. windows were methodologically placed in order to maintain the house temperature while having cool air circulate from the basement. solar panels placed on the roof and the foam insulation aid in keeping the house as energy efficient as possible.

featuring two levels plus a naturally-lit basement, the house is composed of three bedrooms, four bathrooms and welcomes guests through an open-plan living area hosting the kitchen and dining room. the placement of the containers allowed the designers to create rooftop spaces and balconies on the bedrooms that connect both the interior with the interior through the massive windows. outside on the first level, an outdoor area invites users to spend time in nature.

‘the house is a vessel for the lovingly eccentric dynamic within our family,’ loveman concludes on dwell. ‘mark and I don’t understand ‘polite design’ because the urge to make and share things that express our quirky worldview is so strong. the fact that so many of our more traditional friends are also inspired by it has been an unexpected reward.’
